1. How to obtain humility

    Devotee (5): Srila Prabhupada, how is it possible to obtain humility?

    Prabhupada: That is in your hand. We are teaching that you become humble, meek, surrender. If you don’t do it, that is your… You have got the
    independence. That is your business. Where is the humility? You are already surrendering to so many nonsense habits. Why not surrender to Krsna? A little intelligence, that “I have surrendered to my sense enjoyment. My senses are dictating to do something, and I am doing it. I am doing it. So my business is to surrender. So I have already surrendered to my sense activities, to my whims, to my whimsical activities. Why not surrender to Krsna?”
